Did Disney animators draw Jessica Rabbit without underwear in ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit’?

After the Laser Disc of Who Framed Roger Rabbit? was released, it allowed people to scan the animation frame by frame. An enterprising fanatic identified a few frames during an animated sequence wherein the character Jessica Rabbit was flung from a car. Jessica’s body is animated so that she is spinning around in mid-air and her dress is animated accordingly, flowing alongside her body. At one point, Jessica spins around and her legs reveal about three (or six) frames of animation depicting her crotch. The outline of panties or underwear is apparent, but it appears that the colorist of that sequence merely neglected to color in the few frames of animation that revealed her underwear, which would necessarily be a color that contrasts with Jessica’s skin color, such as white or eggshell. Even though it is only three frames from a five second animated sequence, all that is missing is the color of Jessica’s underwear. There is nothing revealed for the three frames. It is about as revealing as the crotch on a Barbie doll.
